Dan Stevens' New Style Makes Us Miss His 'Downton Abbey' Days (PHOTOS)

In case you've been lucky enough to be living under a rock the past few weeks: Dan Stevens' "Downton Abbey" days are over -- and we're not just talking about his role on the period drama. Our favorite blonde dreamboat has kissed his charming, slightly dorky style goodbye in lieu of a harsher, darker, trimmer look.

Obviously, people aren't too happy about this.

The new hair color wasn't exactly a personal styling choice, though. The actor is working on a new film "A Walk Among the Tombstones" in Brooklyn (so close to us!), so he didn't seem to understand why there was so much chatter about his new 'do. "Really? OK, I suppose," he told the Associated Press. "There's so much else going on in the world."

Touché, Dan. But since we still miss your old look, let's take a walk down memory lane...

Here's Dan now:
